“Successful audit teams share their accomplishments both inside and outside of their organization, which strengthens the profession,” said Carolyn Newman, president, Audimation Services. “From the onset of using IDEA, Lisa Gertig has encouraged her staff to push the limits of how data analytics can be used on every engagement.”
University auditors document and share their analysis steps, processes and tests using technique summaries to create an in-house knowledge base and increase the use of data analytics. Gertig and her staff are building a library of templates, scripts and reference guides to apply continuous auditing techniques in other areas of the organization.
Gertig brings more than 20 years of working in both the private and public sector to her role as Manager of IT Audits and Data Analytics at the Colorado State University System. She earned an MS in Business Administration from the Colorado State University, along with several professional credentials, including Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified IDEA Data Analyst (CIDA) and Certified Public Accountant (CPA). She is an active member of the Audit Management Team at Colorado State University System.
